Micaiah, a son of Gemariah, was also listening to the reading; and he it was who brought the news into the palace.

Jeremiah 36:2,4 Take you a roll of a book, and write therein all the words that I have spoken to you against Israel, and against Judah...

with ink. {Baddeyo} us rendered by some, [after him]; but {deyo} (in Chaldee and Syriac {deyootha,} and in Welsh {du,}) certainly denotes ink; whence are derived the Arabic {dawat} and {deweet}, and Persian {deeveet,} an ink-holder; the Syriac {dayowo}, and Persian {div}, the devil.

Perhaps the princes supposed that Baruch had written this roll from memory; and that it was rather to be considered as his composition, than the substance of Jeremiah's prophecies; and they might ask this apparently frivolous question in order to allay the alarms excited by considering it as the word of God. But Baruch, with great simplicity, so answered their question, as to shew that he only acted as Jeremiah's amanuensis, and wrote verbatim what he had dictated.
